The UK's largest independent festival Boomtown has announced a new electronic stage with just 30 days to go until the new chapter event starts. It will be located deep in the woodlands which spread throughout the festival under the name 'House In The Woods' and will be the stage for the best names in House, Disco, Techno and Boogie.
It's safe to say Loco Dice has a rather dedicated following.
Hence, his appearance at the capital at Electric Brixton on the Sunday 31st March with tINI and Enzo Siragusa has created quite a stir, selling out in a week of release.
To prevent an angry mob turning up to Electric's door, Loco Dice will hold another party on Saturday 30th March, this time with live atmospherics from Desolat co-boss Martin Buttrich and deep house/tech honchos Robert Dietz and Hector.
On 1st - 2nd March, Lock N Load present Super You&Me Weekender at Electric Brixton, London.
Laidback Luke's Super You&Me project has seen worldwide success, with the UK capital next on the "EDM" favourite's list.
Unsurprisingly the initial first party on Friday, including Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano and La Fuente, sold out within a week. To accomodate the phenomenal demand a second date has been announced for the Saturday, with filthy dubstep/techno act Congorock and electro-house producer Oliver Twizt on the bill.
Known as much for his personality both online and onstage as he is for his massively successful productions, Toronto native Joel Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5, maintains his place in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll for another year.
Deadmau5 continues to showcase his endless musical versatility, tantalizing fans with previews on his Soundcloud account, like the melodic rework of last year’s hip-hop track ‘Are You Not Afraid’ and a powerful ballad of slowly building synths in a yet-to-be-released collaboration with Grabbitz called ‘Blood For the Bloodgoat’.
Always one to speak his mind about the state of electronic dance music, the year has seen no shortage of Twitter Mau5-traps — artists and fans alike may unwittingly step into one at any moment — but 2015 also saw the artist on line-ups across the globe.
A headlining act for the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, Deadmau5 also appeared at the fabled Austin City Limits, the Reading and Leeds Festivals in England and debuted a new stage at Governor’s Ball in New York City, where he prevailed despite technical turmoil.
Of course, entertaining audiences in the digital ether and on the live stage aren’t the only places you can find him; those who follow his work are well aware that the Mau5 is no stranger to the world of video games.
Earlier this year he released a unique series of sound clips featured in Dota 2, a game developed by the Bellevue, Washington-based Valve Corporation. At the close of the Dota 2 competition — TI5, the largest ever eSports tournament to date — Deadmau5 surprised the crowd at KeyArena in Seattle with a live performance, reminding everyone yet again that his persona is synonymous with large scale entertainment... no matter the mode or method.
